I'm also interested in shaving the door handles, but I dont' understand
the sylinoid concept ( I do know wha ta sylinoid is).  Is there a button
hidden somewhere on the truck that will unlock/open the door?  How does
that work with stock latches?  The stock latches look so complicated
compared to something like those bear claw ones I see in the
magazines. Also, is there still an interior door handle?  Or is the door
also opened via a button on the inside?  Confused as always..
